ZUNAR uses his drawing pen as a weapon to fight state corruption and abuse of power. Through his cartoons, he exposes unsolved murder of a Mongolian woman, the political conspiracy against Opposition-Leader Anwar Ibrahim, the domineering wife of the present Prime Minister, and the shady Scorpene submarine deals and purchasing. Recently he initiated the “Cartoonists Against Electoral Fraud (CAEF)”, a movement to protest against election fraud in Malaysia.
* In August 2009, eight officers from the Home Minister raided his office in Kuala Lumpur after the launching of his political comic magazine, Gedung Kartun. They also confiscated more than 400 copies of the magazine, and subsequently banned it. Zunar was called for investigation under the “Printing and Presses Act.”
